  • Great little versatile light

    posted by horizonseeker on 02/28/2008

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    A great versatile light:
    1) uses 2 different type batteries with 3 different configurations

    2) uses a cree LED (although unknown bin)


    3) bright (see below for battery - light section)

    Cons:

    reverse clickie (full click to turn on/off, no momentary mode when the light is off)



    I have a few other Romisen lights that are forward clickie, thought this might be the same, but it's not.

    OtherThoughts:

    could use a little more lubing and cleaning on the thread, but that's not hard to do by the owners.

    Bottomline:

    If you have 14550 (AA size Li-ion) and RCR123, and KNOWS how to use them SAFELY, this is a great light to have in the 1-cell format.



    CR123 will work in this light and provides bright output.



    using NIMH rechargeable and alkaline in the 2-cell form will give you the same brightness but longer running time.



    1 cell with alkaline or nimh rechargeable should be a last resort with this light, it's made for 3.0V input so the brightness suffers on this level of input.
